  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Service. Excellent, polite, Korean service.

    Location. It's located in the business district -- there's a rather limited choice of meals if you're staying there for more than two or three days. Opportunities to go out are also fairly limited. You have to take taxi or subway to find a good bar.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The nice lobby and surrounding

  • Single
    5.4

    When you first come in to the lobby, it looks like a 4 star hotel. However, once you reach your room, you think you might live in a 2-star (might be lower). Surely the hotel requires some renovation work.

  • Single
    6.6

    small but lovely

    Why room service is close early on sunday LOL

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The hotel is opposite to the Full Gospel Church Yoido. Convenient to attend the Christian Conference.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Nearby metro station, service delivery staff, big and clean room, restaurants and convience store around the corner.

  • Single
    9.2

    Very nice hotel with great ambiance. Located in front of the biggest church in the world. Special on sunday nice to see. 7 services with over 10.000 people per service.

    New hotel for Booked.net and upon arrival our reservation was not in the system, took more then half an hour to locate the reservation, in the meantime they gave a bar-voucher. Also information on Booked.net about location was wrong. Mentioned is 8km from Incheon Airport but it is more then an hour from Incheon Airport! Quite misleading information.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Able to walk along the river bank and close to the Gimpo airport

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Clean, elegant room; efficient check-in and check-out; knowledgeable and professional staff (front desk, concierge); in-room broadband internet; courtesy cellphone and ipad rental option (although I didn't use these, I found it to be a thoughtful and proactive gesture for guests.)

    After check-in, there was no offer of assistance to the room. "Here's your key... Go on up..."; Security also seemed very lax - there was no one monitoring people going up to the rooms or elevators.

  • Older travelers
    3.8

    Very near good eating places and cafes.

    1. Carpets in the hallway and rooms are very dirty. 2. No free bottles of water provided. Had to go out and fetch water to drink. 3. Staff is cordial when asked, but no warmth nor passion at work. 4. The air freshener used smells like the cheap ones used in toilets. 5. Bed mattress is very old, can feel the springs cracking.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Helpful staff which is good when you are in a non English speaking country. If you tell them where you want to go they'll write it on a card for you

  • Couple
    7.0

    Room was large and bed was comfortable.

    Hotel is getting old and rooms are in need of renovation. 15,000 won per day for internet access on top of the room charge is a kick in the pants. Breakfast buffet at the lounge restaurant is extremely underwhelming.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Nice hotel a bit off the city center but in a nice location close to the river.

    I had a room facing the river which means that it was also facing the big road, henace some noice from the traffic (had to sleep with the window open because room was pretty warm).
